Sighting for October 13, 2019

Steven Rosenthal

Jones Beach State Park Field 4- cental mall plantings and 'wild play' theme park area
Nassau County, NY

1 hr 20 minute visit, after 4 days of cold weather (evening temps as low as the 40s) and rain from a subtropical storm. The storm, plus the fact the “Wild play” area has been completely mowed since my prior visit, likely contributed to the lack of Cloudless Sulphurs after their presence for over 2 months. None were seen at the two Point Lookout sites either.

  • Cabbage White common
  • Orange Sulphur 5
  • Cloudless Sulphur 0
  • Painted Lady 6
  • Common Buckeye common
  • Monarch common
  • Fiery Skipper 1
